The goal of the Cultural Competency Conference (CCC) is to support current and future practitioners by providing an event where they have the opportunity to gain a larger foundation within cultural competencies and humility.  The conference is centered around presenters who are knowledgeable and/or immersed in different cultural communities sharing their experiences, insights, research and wisdom.
